Impact of Coronavirus on Healthcare Sectorby Shreya Mehta Executive
Coronavirus has affected many nations and has been declared pandemic by the WHO (World Health Organization). We have to live with the current situation until a vaccine is invented. This would change a lot of things including the basic normal lifestyle. The main impact will also be on the buying decisions. Here, we present how it will affect the hospital furniture buying decisions.
While buying hospital furniture, it is important to consider a lot of crucial factors that will affect the hospital. Due to the novel coronavirus, it is important to know and consider the influential factor for the furniture selection process.
Impact on Healthcare Sector:
Effective Cleaning Services:
As the novel coronavirus has expanded with time, the effect has also been seen on the purchase decision, our lifestyle, and how everything operates. The importance of cleaning and sanitizing has increased. Tackling cleanliness and infection control has become a prime responsibility. The hospital furniture manufacturer in India must follow the strict standard to meet hygiene and infection control. Infection control practitioners play an important role in influencing those involved in the procurement of the hospital environment.
The hospital needs to maintain proper sanitization facilities as the hospital environment is directly exposed to patients. Placing sanitizer everywhere, around beds, furniture, patient desk, hospital examination table, doors, entrances, etc. is important and inevitable to maintain the hygiene and ensure the well-being of the patients and care workers.
Separate Dealing with Covid-19 patients:
Now any person entering a hospital might be or not be a COVID-19 patient. But doing everything possible to stop the spread and taking every possible precaution has become important than ever. Having different entrances, different waiting areas, etc might help the hospitals.
Rethinking the patient flow:
It is very important to re-think and re-develop how a patient enters a hospital and reaches to a doctor. Because during that few minutes too, the patient comes in contact with many people. The hospitals need to develop short patient flow so that the spread of the virus can be restricted.
The present times have been difficult but proper care and precautions can help us in dealing with the virus. Right decisions in such critical times can absolutely make a difference and help save lives.
